Oleg Rovenskyi, Face Base’s Primary Flight Controller, has a heavy Russian accent and a world-weary attitude.
|Oleg, Face Base Primary Flight Controller|
Decorated hero from the early battles on Mars and object of awe among the Free Mars movement, PriFly is the friend with the head honchos back on Cydonia. That's fortunate because his more tolerant views expose him to grave danger from the more extreme Martian revolutionaries (for instance, the Face Base Director of Enthusiasm) . His stories of the early days (e.g., what really led to the battle of Bradbury Cavern) are off color and disrupt the myths of the Free Mars orthodoxy. He's not above a bit of piracy (and enjoying it), likes to drink and laugh. When the chips are down however, he's a long-practiced warrior and will get the job done for his people above all.
All these hot heads around him and PriFly needs to balance what the Committee and The Captain demands, what the ships and pilots must have, his many deep friendships both in the crew and out in the wider world. He's no enthusiast, and doesn’t quite fit in with the revolutionary mystique of the Face Base, but as a decorated hero of the early battles on Mars (but boy! there’s a story there!) he's a blood-friend of the local Committee president, and close comrades with the leadership back home in Cydonia. As such, he’s untouchable. So long as he doesn’t fuck up too badly or get picked up by Multi-Security, he can continue to be proficient, albeit not-quite-as-passionate as some would like.
According to the intel from the lovely Anne, the gift from NewCo we’re mining today includes Platinum, Iridium, and Rhodium. All of which are trading at historic highs. Thank you, Gospozha Anne! I am some excited, I feel like a capitalist corporate dog. In love.
